New beam modelling support added for I,C & T sections. These elements are supported by M3d solver and can be exported to Nastran PBARL cards.
Below: I beam structure under gravitational loading solved in M3ds internal F.E. solver.
M3d v5.4 has been released on the download page. Now M3d includes an Undo and Redo feature supporting 4 levels of Undo.
NASTRAN sol 101 comparison with m3d's SOLver
Shown below is a comparison of a linear static solve performed using MSC Nastran and M3d's solver. The model was imported from an IGES file exported from ACAD Inventor and TET meshed in M3d.
Solid part auto mesher is progressing well, with good quality meshes being produced with the locally Delaunay algorithm. Below electrical enclosure box meshed in M3d.
Current work is focused on getting solid parts and solid meshing up and running for the next M3d release.
